France's Big Stick

One must wonder what France will resort to next? I’m hard pressed to guess which entity Iran must fear most. France itself, the UN, or the EU. All three have shown such resolve and fortitude in the past decade.

French PM: We'll take Iran to U.N.

French Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin has said if Iran does not accept Europe's current proposal aimed at preventing that country from acquiring a nuclear weapons program "we will have to go then to the Security Council."

The horror... the horror...

In a wide-ranging exclusive interview with CNN Chief International Correspondent Christiane Amanpour, de Villepin said that France and the international community must put "all its forces together" to prevent a civil war in Iraq and to blunt terrorism.

Lets see, all its forces…, that would be the US Military as far as I can tell.

If they don't accept -- then we will have to go then to the Security Council."

Well that ought to scare the turbans off of the Mad Mullahs. Anyone want to take bets on when France will invade?
